When we found a pretty little park between Pham Ngu Lao and Le Loi Sts., called the September 23rd park, with a glimpse of green on our explorations we were delighted. A little piece of calm amongst the hustle and bustle.
In a city like Ho Chi Minh, which is an all consuming and completely engulfing place to be (it has a population of 13 million) any where you can go to find for a little rest bite form this chaotic, high octane city, full of energy city is quite frankly a godsend.
Somewhere to quite literally stop and smell the hibiscus.
We also found lots of really lovely architecture in this area. A mixture of old and new shapes and styles, painted in the most unusual of shades that all contribute to an eclectic look and feel that I found to be really unique and beautiful.
We decided to stop of at Little Ha noi egg coffee to try one of their famous egg coffees. It sounded a bit awful to me initially and I'll be honest and say I really wasn't expecting to like it at all... but it was absolutely sensational. To me, it tasted like a marshmallow coffee. Sweet and sticky and delicious.
We also tried an amazing Kumquat, ginger and lemongrass tea that was super refreshing.Little Ha Noi Egg coffee is tucked away down a little alley but don't let that put you off, because its quite the find and definitely one of my top recommendations for visiting Ho Chi Minh City.
One of the reasons I really enjoyed Ho Chi Minh City was because I found it such an visually interesting place. Everywhere you go there is something to see. Its colourful and unique and full of energy and innovation. Its not as quaint as Hoi An but it definitely has some impressive big city vibes going on for sure.
I also found the restaurants to be really unique and innovative and i'm not just talking about the mobile roadside restaurants that they so brilliantly have. There are so many wonderful and interesting options to choose from, you'd never be lost for choices.
Have you ever visited Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam? Id love to hear all about your adventures!
